The Rochester Red Wings announced tonight that the Twins have signed Charlton Jimerson to a minor league contract. The outfielder played in 31 big league games from 2005 through 2008 accumulating just nine at bats. He went 4-9 in those at bats, including two home runs. He spent 2009 with the Independent Newark Bears where he hit .335/.387/.567 with 27 doubles and 21 home runs in 103 games. This is a great signing. The Red Wings needed another outfielder. Jimerson can play all three outfield positions. And, when it comes to potentially needing a fifth outfielder, I would much rather the Twins go with Jimerson than Jacque Jones, Brandon Roberts or Dustin Martin. Again, he isn’t a difference maker, but the 2010 Twins don’t need a difference maker. I like this signing.
PODCAST LIVE AT 9
Just a quick note. I will be hosting the SethSpeaks.net Weekly Minnesota Twins podcast tonight at 9:00 central time. Honestly, I have two confirmed guests at the moment, but may add a third. If not, I will be taking your questions throughout the night. Questions can be asked in the chat room or you can feel free to call in and ask your questions at 347-202-0548. For sure, I will be joined by John Meyer who is The Twins MVB! Also, just got confirmation that Steve Singleton will also join the show. He will be heading to big league camp for the first time.
